Basket O' Book Stacks

***Don't forget to enter my giveaway here!***

This basket sits in my livingroom and normally holds all of my favorite magazines: Country Living, Romantic Homes, Martha Stewart Living, etc.  I wanted to make it a little more exciting so I turned it into a basket o' book stacks:
I picked up some old books this morning from the church thrift store and started tearing them apart once I got home.  Once they looked good and old, I tied them together with some twine and added them to the basket.
The book stack in the front with the flower is one I bought off of Etsy a couple of years ago.  I love the colors in the book stack to the left so I kept them as is.  The one to the right I made last year and features some crowns from The Graphics Fairy.

Yup, I think this looks much better and my magazines are safely tucked in under the stacks!

I love vintage book bundles, too, and yours look great heaped in your neat basket! Love that crown paper, sounds like I need to print some out, too!

I love how you are displaying the book stacks in the basket. If you are like me you have stacks and stacks of decorating magazines hidden all over the place! LOL!
